God... Thank You

I am thankful for God of giving me a life
Aren't you?
If I didn't have a life
I would know nothing

I wouldn't know what's happiness and what's sadness
I wouldn't know what's it like to have friends and families
I wouldn't know what's it like to be cared
I wouldn't know what's it like to be saved

I am thankful
I live for God, my family, my friends, and myself
I am so grateful to live
Because I can live
I can feel happiness and know what's sadness
I can feel what's it like to be loved and cared
And love others and care for others

I will live for everybody's sake
As I live
I learn new things, explore new things, and I learn how to solve problems through experience
I always know God can't take my parents away yet
Not yet, because I need them a lot
I am thankful, God
And I'll always will.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
